Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers March 4/11


Good Day! Happy Friday!!!

Friday is a BIG day for us here at Tootsie Time…(ok, just me…there is no one else here…lol) It’s a big deal because it means it’s PARTY TIME!!!! Fertilizer Friday is the day of the week than an ELITE group of gardeners from all around the world get together, snap photos, link up and Flaunt Their Flowers!!!

Before we begin I feel that I need to re-state the pre-requisites for this little party. There isn’t that much, but it seems there has been some confusion amongst a few participants.

If you are new to Tootsie Time and Fertilizer Friday, I just know you are asking yourself…”How do I join?” Well…it’s easy really. Here’s all you need to know to become a part of this great group of gardeners, bloggers and friends:

If it is spring or summer where you live, you need to snap a few photos of what you have growing, blooming or just love to look at that is of the plant variety…if it is winter where you live, you may post past favorite photos…or indoor plants…whatever you like. The only criteria is that it is a plant or something growing!

You do not need to use fertilizer to participate in this party, but if you do, this is the reminder to fertilize weekly!

All I ask is that: Your post must include the logo above and/or a link to Tootsie Time, or the linky will be deleted. I don’t mean to be harsh, but there have been a lot of people linking in and when the participants graciously click over to their blogs, there is no sign of Fertilizer Friday anywhere to be found. This is not fair to those who do follow the rules, therefore…well you know!

So? what are you waiting for? Get outside, feed, water, snap and post!

It has been a productive week here in my house/greenhouse! I have been plugging away on the little ‘change’ project that I mentioned last week. It is taking a little longer than I wanted it to…but hey…that’s what happens when a girl is busy.

My Internet has been sporadic at best…the provider is having some change or something and I haven’t been able to get around to everyone that linked in yet. I do apologize…and I will be there…be patient with me. I am just one Toots.

The greenhouse is coming along quite well…take a look:


These pots hold Wave Petunia seed…and they are starting to pop up!


Look!!! This is a very young petunia!


Here’s another! There are several of them popping up all over! I was so excited to see that they were sprouting just in time to share today!


Boy are they ever hard to photograph!


The sun is out today…so it is harder to snap good photos of the plants in the greenhouse…it seems the sun wants center stage! The Geraniums are getting bigger by the day! I am so excited for spring to finally come!


My Hydrangea is getting a bloom or two…


…Better yet…the Mandevilla is blooming!!! I thought I was going to lose her this winter!


It looks a little sparse…but it is coming right back!

It has been VERY cold here this week. No nice warm temps for this gardener. The sub zero temps and dreary snowy days, have made it challenging to keep the greenhouse. I have been taking a couple hours each day to fill containers, and prep for the rest of the seeds to be sown.

What are you doing this week? Did you plant any seeds? What’s going on in your area? I can’t wait to hear/ see!

Until next time…hugs and smiles…and wishes for a safe and happy weekend with friends and family. Thanks for popping over this week and a special smile for those who have linked in!

*)*)*) to those special three who just love to pop by and see me! You know who you are!
